Cowher won 161 games (including the playoffs) as Steelers head coach from 1992 to 2006. The Steelers reached the playoffs 10 times, won 8 division titles and Super Bowl XL under Cowher.
Long before Cowher began his NFL journey, Buddy Parker won 51 games as Steelers coach from 1957 to 1964. Shell, who won 4 Super Bowls as a key member of Pittsburgh’s “Steel Curtain” defense in the 1970’s, finished his career with 51 interceptions, which is the most by any strong safety.
